Former WWE star Santino Marella (Anthony Carelli) announce on Twitter that Marty Scurll has been booked to appear at his Battle Arts promotion in Toronto.

The tweet includes a video of Scurll saying that fans will see a side of the villain that has never been seen before and "sh*t gets real" on August 13th. 

Scurll has only worked a handful of shows, primarily outside of the United States, since it was alleged that he slept with a 16-year-old girl in the UK. The tweet sent out today by Marella has not gone over well with many fans as much of the reaction in his mentions has been negative.

Scurll issued this statement in 2020 about the allegation:

"I am aware that a young woman has bravely come forward with her account of sexual abuse by some members of the wrestling community in the UK 5 years ago, a community I was a part of.

Although I truly believe that our encounter that evening was consensual, and the fact that the encounter was legal; is almost not the point. I understand that she now views our encounter as part of a bigger problem within the wrestling community.

What concerns me at this moment is that from what I have been reading, she is a fan of wrestling and was made to feel unsafe within that community. This is not acceptable. I also understand that people have been attacking her on social media, and I implore you to please stop. She has a right to her voice and it is our responsibility to listen."
